Anne Amie 2011 Pinot BlancThe Pamplins’ Twelve Oaks Estate, a hand-picked Salmon Safe vineyard, produced the crop that spent 18 months of surlie aging in 10% new French oak. The helps account for aromas of peach taffy, pear, Gala apple and clove. There’s a nice balance to the broad flavors of baked pineapple, apricot, pear and more clove, which are packaged inside a dense midpalate. Suggested fare includes roasted chicken, truffled fries or mushroom risotto.
